Todd and his wife Cathrine have devoted their lives to serving their country and their community.
“We both come from military families,” said Cathrine Shaw. “Todd’s family goes back a while, but mine has had someone in the armed service going all the way back to the Revolutionary War.”
Todd and Cathrine Shaw are both members of the Military Order of the Purple Heart. They are one of only two married couples in the U.S. with both spouses in the order. Todd was caught in an explosion while serving in Iraq in April 2006. Seven of his vertebrae were broken, and three were crushed. Cathrine suffered injuries to her back, knees, wrists and ankles in an explosion in August of the same year while serving in Afghanistan.
